Gas Prices Set Holiday Record

Patch File Photo: Pumping gas

The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in San Diego County rose to a record amount for Christmas for the third consecutive year, increasing two-tenths of a cent to $3.583, erasing the previous record of $3.563 set last year.

Prices are typically lower in the winter than the summer, when higher demand pushes prices up. The record price is $4.725, set on Oct. 8.

The record came despite decreases for 74 of the previous 77 days that dropped the price to its lowest amount since Dec. 27, 2011, according to figures from the AAA and Oil Price Information Service.

The average price is 2.2 cents less than one week ago and 19.6 cents lower than one month ago, but 2 cents more than one year ago.

    What is a good camera for both recording and taking photos?
    I really want a camera for recording music (so i’d like it to have a good mic and picture) and I also want one for taking pictures for when I go on holiday. But I don’t want to have to buy two separate cameras for both things. So, does anyone know of a good camera that has these things, but not too expensive (max £400 please)

  • secret_asian_man does video reviews of cameras. There you will be able to sample what camera has the sound and video quality that is too your liking.

    Live concerts will require some type of automatic leveling system to stop the sound from clipping (the distortion you hear on poorly recorded concerts).
